Does it ever end? I’d like to wake up someday and hear good news about wolves. That all the haters had a change of heart and realized wolves were a vital part of our ecosystem, just like our other apex predators. But alas that would take a miracle.
Two Wolves Shot in Northwest Montana; Reward Offered
By New West Staff, 11-16-10
From the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service:
On Nov. 6, 2010, two wild gray wolves were found dead in separate locations on the Flathead National Forest in northwestern Montana. One wolf was found dead along Coal Creek Road, while the body of the other dead wolf was recovered in the Miller Creek area. Both animals appeared to have died as a result of gunshot wounds.
Killing a wolf is a violation of the Endangered Species Act.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the agency responsible for enforcing the Endangered Species Act, is investigating the wolves’ deaths. There is a reward of up to $2,500 is for information leading to the identification and prosecution of the person or persons involved in the killing of these wolves. If you have information regarding this case, please contact the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Great Falls, Montana at 406-761-2286.
Wolf Warriors will be taking donations for a reward to catch these wolf killers. We will be posting the information on how to donate very soon.
For the wolves, For the wild ones,
In Memory Of All The Wolves Killed For Nothing.
